Many thanks for the kind votes & comments. It has only taken me 10 years to complete the set.

This bit of old world elegance is just a pleasing and tranquil image.
Excellent lighting and the absence of any modern conveniences like cars or road signs are a distinct plus.

I will look forward to knowing the location of this lovely scene when rollover happens.
